Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (SHN & FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>FLAC)
August 15, 2008
1) One momentary cut in the AUD during Drums into Space. One brief cut in the SBD during Space.
2) Fades were used to create a "seamless" AUD track.
3) There are several atomic Phil bombs during Terrapin and Other One.
4) Jerry Garcia on "matrix" recording in 1981 regarding the Dead Set and Reckoning albums:
"It's a remarkable process that gives [the recording] a three-dimensionality that is uncanny - it really does...It's actually superimposed, the best of both worlds: the close mic sound of being right on stage, you know, and the thing of being in the room and the way the room, what the room does - those things superimposed on each other, you know, in various relationships. It's pretty much like being there."

The Dark years? The rebirth of midi? Wow I hate to say but this is a clueless review. Your only "rep" is that of a young kid who never saw real shows.
The Dead were so much better in '83 than '89. The Dead and MIDI are not a good mix, the Dead were so much better dirty and raw. The late '80's are tame, the "jams" were horrible, nopise basically. or soem curcus flute sound. Not the awesdome pin you to the wall jams of '79-'85. Garcia had to re-learn how to play guitar in '86. He was still very good after that but clearly not what he was before the coma. I give the guy credit for even coming back.
I enjoyed this run, all three nights were well played and great energy.

Nice Matrix SBD and I am not a fan of the matrix, mostly a sbd guy I am. This show was a pleasant shocker of a listening experience. It seems like something was up wth Jerry as he only sings two songs and does Brokedown as an encore-with the help of the band in set 2. I don't know...but its a fine show to hear. I like the Bobby songs a lot and Jerry seems like he is into jamming- 'Bro esau' and 'stranger' highlight set one and in set two the post drums and space bobby fest is enjoyable and jerry and the band play diligently on every song. The sailor saint> far from me>Terapin! are you kiddin me! True heads only- newbies can go back and enjoy the 70's dead. This is very solid high quality sound in the middle of what can only be described as the dead's Dark years...this was not the renassaince of 1989 and the midi sounds and rebirth of songs like dark star and help slip, death don't and Attics, although they would play saint stephen 6 months and 12 days after this show, this year is basically the year the stretching of the 'young dead' run of post hiatus '76-'83 ends...and the mid eigties decline of Jerry leading to his coma begins. 1983 sounds like a great year on tape- I saw 99 shows from '87-'95...I have scoured this archive in obssessive and OCD manner searching for the sound, and in trying to crack the case, and as Richard Kimbal (harrison Ford) said in 'The Fugitive', " I just found a pretty big piece"...The Space is a totally inventive spooky screaching tripfest and oh btw, just before saint of circumstance starts out of sailor Bob yells: "like a swiss watch'...its just a funny show-I think the band is very high-and no doubt a show where Bob carries them vocally, but Jerry is hangin out with some nice licks and nice JG song selection- he is great on Dupress and West LA and Terrapin- but other than that we don't really here from him much except on his guitar and post drums space with a splendid wharfrat snuggled between Bobby's quadruple entante of other>throwing stones , around Good lovin- but its all good! Still, collectors and experts only...if you just got into the dead yesterday and like this show- you have the gift- the gift of actually liking the dead not just a few songs from 1977. Enjoy! I am going 4 stars because I have a rep to protect- ha! 5 star sound.
